Roasted Squash with Better Than Everything Bagel

by John Beaver March 20, 2016

Here's a simple but delicious squash recipe for the fall season. 

Serves 2-3
Ingredients:

1 medium sized squash (about 2 lbs), acorn or butternut, peeled or not, sliced into 1/2" thick semicircles
1 onion, sliced
5 or 6 whole cloves of garlic, peeled
3 or 4 fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced (about 1/4 lbs)
3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbsp + 1 tsp Better Than Everything Bagel Spice 
zest of half a lemon, minced
1 tbsp lemon juice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F. Sometimes we don't peel the squash, but you could if you don't like the slightly bitter taste from the peels. Add all the ingredients except lemon zest, lemon juice and 1 tsp Better than Everything Bagel Spice to a large mixing bowl and toss. Spread out on baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes. Flip squash and stir other ingredients. Continue in oven for another 15-20 minutes until squash and onions are slightly golden. Put in a mixing bowl and toss with zest, juice and remaining tsp of Better than Everything Bagel Spice.

If you're not a mushroom fan, you could use chopped kale or chard instead. Green onions (chopped into long pieces) work well instead of or in addition to the shiitake for added umami. Possible add ons could include roasted chopped pistachios or almonds or even chopped dates or other dried fruit for a sweeter result.
